Sam Mendes Wins Best Director at DGA Awards 2020, '1917' Stars Step Out to Support Him

Sam Mendes poses with the stars of his movie 1917George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman – while attending the 2020 Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday (January 25) at the Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles.

The 54-year-old filmmaker won the Best Director award for his work on the WWI movie 1917. The film is nominated for Best Picture and Best Director at the Oscars, so this will be a big help in securing the film wins there as well.

The other Best Director nominees at the DGA Awards were Parasite‘s Bong Joon Ho, The Irishman‘s Martin Scorsese, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘s Quentin Tarantino, and Jojo Rabbit‘s Taika Waititi.

Sam won the DGA Award for his first movie American Beauty twenty years ago. During his acceptance speech he said, “I didn’t feel like I knew what I was doing. I feel a little more that I do now.”
